The Hanoi City People’s Committee signed
a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on forming friendly and cooperative
relations with the administration of the US state of Utah following a dialogue of
Hanoi and Utah businesses in Hanoi on August 30.
The dialogue, held on the occasion of a visit to Hanoi by
Utah Governor Gary Herbert, was attended by representatives from 15 Hanoi
enterprises and 25 from Utah.
Speaking on the occasion, Chairman of the municipal People’s
Committee Nguyen Duc Chung wished that via the MoU signing, the two sides will
officially decide on specific cooperative contents and implement them. He
mentioned possible fields for cooperation such as general education, personnel
training, technological transfer, transport infrastructure, information
technology, pharmaceuticals, high-tech agriculture, energy, tourism and
The Hanoi authorities pledge all possible support to foreign
enterprises on the win-win basis, he said, adding that he hopes the Governor
would serve as a bridge promoting Hanoi’s ties with the US administration and
businesses and those in Utah in particular.
Herbert, for his part, said the Utah administration creates
favourable conditions for foreign firms in the state by cutting taxes,
simplifying administrative procedures and streamlining apparatus.
He revealed that though recording the highest economic
growth in the US, Utah state has the smallest administration apparatus, which
he said, has laid foundation for success.-VNA
